A kitty's eye discharge could be for many reasons (eye infection, internal problem, etc.) and should be examined by a veterinarian for correct treatment. If you do not take your kitty to a vet for help now, the problem can become worse and much more difficult (and costly!) to treat.

Your cat has an eye infection. Cats can lose their vision if the infection isn't cleared up in time. Your cat might also have the feline respiratory virus, which can cause permanent vision damage and mouth ulcers if not treated.


You'll need to take the kitten in to the vet for a definite diagnosis and medicine.

Expect to hear answers like "Call the vet" from people who don't know anything. While it is true that eye discharge can mean different things. With kittens, it is usually a few common things.

1. A bigger cat smacked the kitten and caught its eye with a claw.
2. The kitten has an eye infection. Which can usually be treated with antibiotic ointment applied around the eyes. Plus. You can give kitten the same liquid antibiotics you give your kids. Just google for sample dosages.


3. Kittens often are born with, or catch feline herpes which manifests into the goopy stuck eyes and intense sneezing and cold like symptoms. Buy a bottle of LYSINE pills. They usually come as 400mg pills. If the kitten will drink milk from a dropper, then that is the perfect chance to smash up a pill into fine dust. Mix it in. And feed it to the kitten. This will smack down the herpes flare up. Its best to give it every day to a kitten that has it. Or just do it when the herpes becomes a problem.

These kinds of symptoms usually lessen as a kitten gets old enough to show immunity. Don't fall into the vet trap which always consists of high cost drugs, shots, and pet food.

There is a LARGE LIE going around that cow's milk is bad for kittens. I have fed kittens on whole milk for 35 years. They have had zero problems. And grew up to be the healthiest cats imaginable. They try to say that cats are lactose intolerant. That is true. CATS. Not kittens. But even if a cat gets some diarrhea from milk. It does not harm them. And the milk is good for them. Thats why cats have been drinking it for centuries. Just giving you an example of how "vets" are nothing more than salesman for the drug and pet food companies.

I COMPLETELY AGREE WITH YOU. My kittens have eye discharge and I applied warm water and keeps coming back. next step oitment FINAL STEP VET. I trust no vets as some will provide uneccessary medical treatment for profit.


Last resort is a vet. no one can love our animals like we do. so why not let us treat them safely. great freaking post

Thank you for this information! This has helped me so much with my little kitty that has a goopy eye. The vet wanted to charge me $65 just to be seen & then for the price of any antibiotics on top of that. I'm glad I did research & found this comment.
